AESOP European Urban Summer School for young planning professionals
AESOP European Urban Summer School aims at bringing together young professionals and experienced academics and practitioners across Europe to discuss planning issues.
We expect that it will facilitate trans-European understanding of planning matters and, as a consequence, will help with improving quality of life. These aims correspond with AESOP objectives enumerated in AESOP Charter. We wish to involve both EU and non-EU countries into the project knowing that AESOP has no geographical limits of membership.
AESOP has offered its resources in teaching at European Urban Summer Schools. This idea may facilitate trans-European exchange and foster a debate on the most important planning topics. It may promote every involved actors as bodies being able to help politicians and other stakeholders in spatial development and management issues.
This concept doesn't involve economic profit. European Urban Summer School should be a platform of debate and exchange.
